“thank you george and lee”
Reviewed September 11, 2008

my husband and i just happened to have a few day s off together toward s the end of the summer season and thought we would grab a few nights away.
we found ourselves in torqauy and went for a walk to find a nice b and b near the town and seafront.
we came across the Lawnswood just 2 mins front the seafront and "tried our luck" to see if they had any rooms.
George greeted us so warmly and we were able to book in for 2 night s, our room was large and very comfortable. the guesthouse was clean, modern and lovely.
our friends did joke we had gone on a faulty towers type break but it was far from it .
the breakfast was great with plenty of everything esp hot fresh coffee much needed by my better half, to prepare for a day s shopping.
we have a 6 yr old son, and even tho he was nt with us on this break i would be comfort to bring him to the lawnswood knowing how comfortable and warm George and lee made us.
there is parking for 3 cars at the rear but we found plenty of spaces outside the front on the road which is free all day.
if you were looking for a welcome to torquay you would not find a warmer one.

My wife & I happened on this place by accident as we had arrived in Torquay just for a one night break & the guest house had a vacancy. I had no problem with parking o/s in the street, perhaps I was just lucky. We found the place spotlessly clean & apparently newly decorated. The bathroom was too small for my liking & access was restricted due to position of double bed, but it was spotless. Breakfast was perfectly adequate. George made us feel very welcome. Did not visit the RAF club next door & had no problem with any noise. Would I come back? Only if I had a room with a bigger en suite! Otherwise for friendliness & cleanliness it can't be beaten.

We have just returned from a lovely stay at The Lawnswood Guest House. Myself and my husband took our two very young children and although it is usually difficult to find somewhere which will cater for children, the Lawnswood was a real gem.

The rooms were ultra clean, George was so helpful and the breakfast was lovely.

We will definately be back.

we have just returned from a short break in torquay, we have returned to the lawnswood for the 5th time and compliment george and lee for their hospitality. This guest house is central for all attractions in Torquay and once again we were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed our stay in this superb guest house. We have already booked for next year

Stayed here for 3 nights during August 2008. George and Lee were very welcoming and helpful with providing local information and recommending places to eat. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We parked at the rear of the premises when we were able to which was not an inconvenience even though we were with elderly parents. Used the RAF club next door for a nightcap and they made us welcome. Breakfast was good, we certainly didn't go hungry. Would definitely stay here again.
